Update on Silent Film V.2

I just finished the rough new cut on the second half of Hell's Bells. I have some visuals from earlier in the film to plug in appropriately, some title/dialogue cards to add, and then a polish. Looks like I'll be bringing it in under 40 minutes (from 46 mins). Coming along nicely and I'll be glad to have it seen again.

Update On Silent Film Re-Release

I am now halfway through the new cut on my 2012 silent picture Hell's Bells which was screened at the Fox Theater in Redlands shortly after completion. It's looking good! I can't wait to jump into the second half cut. The pacing of the film is just right now so I'm anxious to finish and get to completing the final visual touches. I have already laid new music onto the soundtrack. This final version will screen first in a memorial event for family and friends of our actor Josh Einertson who passed away last year. After that, I plan to schedule another public screening so keep watching for announcements. In keeping with the guerilla microbudget style of the film, I'll be looking for old historical theaters or venues fitting the retro theme, like large backrooms in cafes and the like. I may try to enter the film into a festival or two. Ultimately, it will be part of a larger roadshow presentation presently being discussed with other filmmakers and investors.

Keep watching for more announcements!
